have your mother make you kibbeh

| 0 comments

today in my #class ‘through another lens’ we read from the catalog for ‘clear-hold-build’ a powerful #art #exhibit i saw at Twelve Gates Arts#gallery in #philly a couple of weeks ago. 

we focused on #iraqi #artist dena al-adeeb’s work, particularly ‘have your mother make you kibbeh’ which re-enacts dena’s ongoing participatory #performance ‘the #taste of #displacement.’ 

i made kibbeh for my students and we enjoyed eating them with hummus, chips and lemonade as we watched a clip from the video installation.
